    zeitgeist the movie

    I watched part of this movie Sunday afternoon

    http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com/

    Regarding the federal reserve in the States, the movie claims that an elite group of bankers have taken control of the economy, government and country over the last 150 years.

    It claims the federal reserve is actually a private corporation (the bankers) who print dollars that are loaned to the US government. Hence, interest is charged by the FR and paid by US taxpayers. It also claims federal taxes are actually illegal and unconstitutional.

    Apparently, there is no law that stipulates US citizens must pay federal taxes and the constitution outlaws federal taxes. All federal taxes are passed to the federal reserve and none of the funds are allocated to the government.

    There's too much for me to summarise but interesting stuff.

    It starts by discussing religion.

    I posted this in issues but maybe it should be here instead.

    Please watch.

    The thing about these conspiracy theories is that everyone assumes 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory, must be false'.
    As the old saying goes, just because you're paranoid it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.
    Someone controls the money, and it's not the government.
    "In my professional assessment as an intelligence officer, Trump has a reflexive, defensive, monumentally narcissistic personality, for whom the facts and national interest are irrelevant, and the only thing that counts is whatever gives personal advantage and directs attention to himself."

    That sounds almost exactly like America: Freedom to Facism. Uncannily so actually.

    If you're interested in this sort of thing you might want to give that a watch Dave.
